Does anyone Star San their corks? It seems that would be a quick way to sanitize them. Any issues with doing it?

I keep mine in a corkidor. That way, they have some humidity around them and are sanitized.

First batch I ever made I star-saned the corks, it glued the corks in. I don't know if the acid loosened the adhesive used to hold the bits of cork together or if just the star san itself left behind a residue but those were the hardest to open bottles ever. Had the set them on the floor between my feet, use a levered cork screw and hope it didn't break the bottle or spill when the cork broke loose.
